There is so much going on for FNO 2012 in LA (September 6, 2012). Whether you live on the west-side, near the beach or you reside in Hollywood or near Griffith Park on the east-side of LA there is something going on near your neighborhood. Have fun shopping and supporting local designers as well as FNO globally.
This evening, Thursday, August 30th, Africa Fashion Week Los Angeles (AFWLA) will host “Africa Is Rising”, a networking social highlighting Africa’s fashion and textile industries, at The Standard Hotel (550 S Flower Street) from 6-10pm. Tina Tangalakis of Della LA is our special guest, and proceeds from all ticket sales will go towards the MacDella Cooper Foundation.
Unfortunately, I already have plans for this evening but if I didn’t I would be there! Hope you all get to enjoy the event!

Africa Fashion Week Los Angeles is pleased to have sponsorships by Arik Air, OPI, Face 2 Face Africa, Della LA, Clear Essence, Sassy Hair Extensions W.E.T PR, Miss Dunnie O and ETHNO Nightlife. Arik Air is a well-regarded African airline that has teamed with other Africa fashion weeks around the globe. Additionally, Face 2 Face Africa is at the forefront of African media in the United States. In partnering with organizations like the MacDella Cooper Foundation, which provides educational, economic and social relief to Liberian orphans and children, AFWLA aims to incite a shift in the perception of African designers, African cultures and Africa as a whole. The continent is so much more than meets the eye. And much like New York Times op-ed columnist Nicholas D. Kristoff recently stated, in his article titled as such: Africa is [still] on the rise.AFWLA is encouraging a minimum of $5 donations as 100% of all proceeds will go towards the MacDella Cooper Foundation. All payments should be made via Eventbrite. The first 50 registrants will receive a gift bag featuring items from the generous sponsors.

Actress and America’s Next Top Model winner, Eva Marcille attended the BET Awards ’12 at The Shrine Auditorium on July 1, 2012 in Los Angeles, California. Marcille glowed in white and showed off her lengthy limbs. I love her earrings, make-up and her all-around sexy summer look.

Kim Kardashian attended the 2012 BET Awards in a body-hugging white dress. She happened to match her beau Kanye West. Coincidence? I think not but either way do you think she could walk away Best Dressed of the night? Wrong again but it does compliment her physique and she does look picture perfect.
